I have been appointed Co-ordinator of the “W. O.” Memorial Fund in memory of the late W. O. Bentley and, as such, I am responsible for the general organisation.
I feel that it is most important that this fund, and its object of providing a permanent memorial, should succeed. This is a very great task, with the increasing high costs of land and building construction today, which means that the amount of the fund must be high for the result to mature.
The purpose of this letter is therefore to request that you will, as far as possible, give this cause the widest possible publicity. It is thought that there must be many persons who are not actually BDC members who would wish to be associated with the memorial by making a subscription; however large or small, it will not only certainly be needed but greatly welcome and appreciated. I hope to reach these persons through your kind help.
In conclusion may I thank you in anticipation of your help which will assist The “W. O.” Memorial Fund to its objective.
B. M. Russ-Turner,
